Default Re: Scanning of Manuals & Circuit Diagrams?

Bobdger and I have been scanning magazine inserts, mainly PW, and posting them here:

https://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/...d.php?t=169177

I have also sent them to World Radio History.

The larger pages Bobdger scanned and I scanned the A4 ones
I use Vuescan pro with the following settings:

200dpi
24 bit RGB
output - pdf
pdf size reduction - 1
pdf compression - on
magification - 100%

I do not try and adjust the colour balance, this does mean that some pages have a yellowish background but most pages I scan have yellowed with age anyway.

I have not tried ocr but vuescan does have a tick box setting "PDF OCR text"
